Most likely the power brick dying. You can get new ones on ebay for like 20 shipped or so.

So I need to buy a new monitor and I have it narrowed down to 2-3 models. This is one of them and, because all other 1440p monitors seem to be out of my price range, I'm pretty sure it's the one I'm going to go with. But I would like to get a bit more information about it before I buy so I have a few questions -

1) From what I've seen in photos and video, the screen on this monitor seems very, very shiny - I'm assuming from a lack of anti-glare coating. My work area is set up to avoid having any lights directly in front of my monitor, but I do sometimes work with the lights on and some pictures of this monitor make it look as though it's almost as reflective as a mirror. Is it that much of an issue?

2) How heavy is the monitor? One of the biggest reasons I started looking at it is because it has a VESA mount (and is it just me or do lots of new 27" monitors not have VESA mounts for some reason?) and I would like to get some mounting arms for my desk - but one site said that it weighs 8kg, which seems heavy considering other monitors I've looked at are more like 4-5kg, and arms that I've looked at state they carry a max weight of 8kg, so that could be cutting it close.

3) Are there any other similar models that I should consider? The other models that I'm considering are 1080p - probably better overall build quality because they're from brands like Asus and Samsung, but being able to get a 1440p monitor at this price point is very appealing.

I've had this monitor for at least 2 years, and just this week I've found that if the monitor is off, and I turn it on, the screen will come on for 1 second, then turn off for a few seconds, then come on for 1 second, and turn off for a few seconds etc.

What I've been doing is unplugging the monitor power completely, plugging it back in, and after a couple of cycles it will usually stay on, but I think it's getting worse. Does it sound like a power supply failure, or something with the monitor itself?

The monitor still looks 100% perfect... I really don't want this thing to die on me.

Just got this same problem after having it for a few years. can no longer get it to stay on.
Did the new power supply fix it for you?
